#560 - We Had a Miscarriage - Part 1
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
God, I dreamed of having a little baby. How could You allow me to conceive a baby only to take the baby from me? How could You allow the baby to grow in my womb only to take the baby from me? How could You allow me to make plans for the nursery only to take the baby from me? How could You allow my body to transform only to take the baby from me? How could You allow me to feel the baby kick only to take the baby from me? You allowed me to dream of the baby's days as an infant, as a toddler, in elementary school, in middle school, in college, and as an adult. You took the baby away from me after all of that? Father, this seems so cruel. I've lost part of who I am. My dreams are crushed. My purpose to life has ended. How could You do this to me? Father, Your Word tells us that Your Son Jesus Christ was conceived in Mary's womb by the Holy Spirit. That means His soul was present from the moment the egg was implanted in Mary's uterus. There was a soul present in the very first minute of my baby's pregnancy. Father, I believe our souls are eternal, created for You to have an everlasting relationship with each of them. Since my baby was not developed enough to choose to rebel against You, he or she is with You, enjoying eternal peace and joy. Father, I have confessed that I have been a rebel from You. I have confessed that I have doubted You. I have confessed that I have worshipped other gods. I have asked that what Jesus did on the cross paid the price for my rebellion. That means my soul will go to be with You when I die. That means my soul will meet and enjoy an eternal relationship with the soul You brought into my womb for a brief time. I will meet my baby one day. I will see for myself how precious and delightful You made them to be. Meanwhile, please help me to grieve my loss. I'll trust You that this was good for reasons I will not understand. I ask that You bless me with the abundance of Your grace, mercy, compassion, and love. Thank You. Amen.
